The Muukaden[1] (ムーカデン[2] Mūkaden?) is an enemy that appears in Sonic Advance 3. It is a mass-produced Badnik model created by Dr. Eggman.



The Muukadens are red Badniks with bodies made up of a string of spheres. They have large cartoonish black eyes, yellow mandibles, yellow and black hazard stripes running down their back, and long drills on both sides of their bodies, right behind their heads.


The Muukadens only appear in Chaos Angel. In gameplay, the Muukadens can be found flying through midair. While flying, they will have spikes protruding from and retracting into both sides of their bodies. These spikes makes it difficult to both dodge and attack this Badnik without taking damage. In order to defeat a Muukaden, the player has to attack its head.
